The next meeting of the Greater Pine Island Civic Association will take place at 6:30 p.m. June 2, 2019, at the Greater Pine Island Elks Lodge, 5630 Pine Island Road, Bokeelia, FL 33922. (Just west of the four-way stop sign.)
Members and non-members are welcome.
This month’s featured speaker is Tim Ritchie, founder of March Against Mosaic. He will describe “how regional phosphate mining poisons our environment and harms our health. Come and learn how you can help curb this destruction.”
We’ll also provide an update on the acquisition of 58 acres of land next to the Winn Dixie by the Conservation 20/20 program, including a proposal to turn 15 acres of that land into a storm debris site. We’ll also provide an update on the Publix shopping center plaza planned for Pine Island Road.
